Most laughter isn't because things are funny.
Every culture in the world laughs, but surprisingly, most of our laughter isn't necessarily a response to humor.

This need to avoid clothing that could have been worn throughout the day also extends to T-shirts; you'll need to lose those as fast as your surfer shorts.
